You people who don't get headaches should really ask your local university research hospital where to donate your body after your die so it can be studied. There must be something about your genetics or physiological expression that could be used to help those who suffer tremendously from headaches.

But that, by definition, isn't an "ice cream headache" (a/k/a "brain freeze"). I don't know what that is, and I've never experienced an "ice cream sore throat".
An ice cream headache describes a brief, sharp, stabbing pain right between the eyes and it's caused by something cold moving across the roof of the mouth.

I've had very mild headaches (more like a dull ache) which are usually hydration-related, but only very painful headaches two or three times in my life. Well, except for hangovers.
I also rarely get sick and when I do it lasts no more than a day. Other than food poisoning (which I've had a few times), the last time I can say that I've had the flu (sickness lasting more than a day) was when I was 12 - 18 years ago. And I've never had a shot. I get a cold about once a year, and it's typically over in two or three days.
My partner, meanwhile, gets sick quite a bit. He can't understand why I don't.

My dad was like you. He never had a headache in his life. He lived to 87, but he did have severely blocked carotid arteries, that gave him no symptoms except one time he started to see circles. I immediately took him to his ophthalmologist, thinking it was his glaucoma and the doctor knew this was a symptom of carotid artery disease. My dad went for a Doppler and it showed a 97% blockage on one side and 70% on the other. He had surgery to clear one side and before he had a chance to have the other side cleared he died of a stroke. Through all of this he never had a headache.

Consider yourself lucky OP. I've been getting headaches go as long as I can remember, often they are migraines accompanied by vomiting, light sensitivity, disruptions in smelling and taste, mood swings and general misery. The good news is I am pretty healthy and MRI and CT scans show nothing like tumors or aneurysms. I usually vomit with a migraine so I have to take acetaminophen in suppository form. If it is a regular headache, ibuprofen or aspirin. I don't have any better result with prescription migraine medications, though I did love my fiorecet back in the day.

Imitrex makes me feel weird, it's no miracle for me. I took a dose and had a panic attack when my neck and head started getting a rush of pins and needles. My MD then gave me something called 'Maxalt MLT' which melts on the tongue with a creamy mint taste which makes me throw up. So, I'm screwed. I just ride it out, hoping the acetaminophen slowly melting in my rectum will bring relief.

The only time when I get a headache is when I haven't slept in ca. 24 hours and then go to sleep for ca. ten hours straight. When I wake up the headache is only minor, but it steadily increases during the day. A recent medical study claims that during sleep the brain is literally 'washed' in order to get rid of all the toxins that have build up during the day, so this - and the dehydration of the brain - may be one of the reasons why someone experiences a headache.

It lasted four months, solid, and for the last six weeks any time the oxymorphone started to wear off he screamed at the top of his lungs in agony. It was terrible. By the end he had no vocal cords left, so as he died is was just like a horrible, long hiss.
